    Abstract

    This research explores the ethical and social issues arising from the phenomenal growth of commercial E-Gambling within Europe. The digitised commercial services of a leading European operator is scrutinised using internet research methods from 2003 to 2006 to produce the findings. Internet research methods were selected because they offer interesting insights that have proved difficult to ascertain by others, using alternative approaches. This empirical study highlights some of the social problems associated with E-Gambling, particularly in relation to concerns with the level of problem gambling. In addition, it finds that commercial operators have a contradictory stance in terms of the delivery of their ethical policies in some commercial practices.
